Home to the Wildcat Football team, the Wildcats athletic field was named after Frank Vertin, a former Wahpeton businessman. Years ago, the Vertin family made a generous contribution to NDSCS in honor of Frank which was put towards the Frank Vertin Field. Then in 2007 a $1.5 million renovation began on the Frank Vertin Field and Earl "Skip" Bute Alumni Stadium.
The Frank Vertin Field includes:
- A lighted football field
- The Earl "Skip" Bute Alumni Stadium
- 4 practice football fields
- Outdoor track
- 6 outdoor tennis courts
